Chocolate Chia Pudding
This easy and healthy Chocolate Chia Pudding is great for a quick breakfast on the go or a late night chocolate fix. Mix the ingredients together and they’ll transform into a thick and creamy pudding overnight.
Chia puddings had a moment a few years back and then kind of fizzled away. I must admit I wasn’t a huge fan of the trend, mostly because I found plain chia puddings really boring. But these chocolate chia puddings were my only exception. They are damn delicious.
When it comes to these puddings, it’s all about the toppings. I’ve put a huge list of suggestions below but I highly recommend strawberry and banana slices with some dark chocolate chunks and coconut sprinkled over. It’s not the only way to enjoy these, but it is certainly my favourite.

I have friends at work who use the chia seeds and live by them. I honestly haven’t tried them so I couldn’t say. Although if I were to try them, having them in a recipe like this is the way I would go.
I keep seeing Chia everywhere, but I’m scared to try them. There’s not a lot of foods I don’t like taste-wise, but texture-wise I have a lot of issues! But since this has chocolate, I guess I can give it a try. ??
Oh yum, it looks so good! I like adding chia seed to yoghurt and letting it sit for a minute or two – like an instant chia pudding! ?? I should make proper chia pudding one day, a recipe like this is a good way for me to start! ??
What Designers Can Try From Martha Stewart?
Like every housewife, Martha Stewart, a long-time developer of experience, can teach a few things to UX practitioners to bring back users for more.
You can compare the experience of spending time with people living in their homes to experience a brand. When you enter the home of a truly wonderful host, you are faced with a number of carefully designed options designed to give you a positive experience. In other words: you are experiencing the ın brand ”of that household.
Pleasant tastes, ambience and lighting, welcoming cuddles and talking, the best hosts are planning every experience that their guests will experience, taking into account all their senses and emotional reactions. Like every brand, good hosts want their guests to come back for more.
Although some houses have played a role in persuading people to carefully consider their guests' multi-sensual needs while Martha Stewart, Candice Olson, and Jonathan Adler had such personalities, many homeowners have done this in multiple points of contact for generations. In many ways, we can say that homeowners are original experience designers.
Like every good host, brands also want consumers to enjoy the experience of their products. However, very often, they do not understand the spectrum of the multi-sensory needs of their customers and thus fall behind the expectations of the meeting.
Brands, Martha, Candice and Jonathan, by considering the three important principles, including the best daily hosts, brands can design meaningful, multi-sensory experiences and establish long-term relationships with customers.
